Cheerful Weather For The Wedding

Has anybody else seen this movie?  I just watched it last night.  The last few minutes are still lingering, and I'm trying to figure things out.

And right now that is the lack of sleep I've been getting.  Eternal blessings upon caffeine.

Live Confidently and Follow Your Dreams

Kayla was here this weekend (!!!!!!)
She's the best because she will selflessly listen to me ramble selfishly, and then offer the best advice and tell me that I'm a wonderful person.

Rooftop BBQs and Art Creeps

My friends and I had a rooftop BBQ yesterday.  It was enjoyable and delicious and warm and all things good.  I ate all the strawberries because they're my favorite food.  I left after just two hours because I could tell that I was in a "If I'm super loud then people have to notice me, also let me talk all about how cool I am, all of these things will make people love me and definitely not annoyed with me" mood, and that I should cut my losses and head home.

I walked to the GPC metro, but before I knew  it, my feet had taken me to the National Gallery.  It was about quarter of 9 by this point, and I climbed the steps and laid down to admire the sky and recharge.  The weather was perfect, and the moment was peaceful.

Then, because the NGA is my favorite place in DC but also definitely the creepiest, I sat up and noticed that on the green across the steps, there was some guy lingering next to his bike.  Not just lingering, but staring.  Not just staring, but taking pictures of me.  I saw that he was holding a camera waist/bike seat high, and that the flash/indicator light would go off repeatedly at irregular intervals.  At around 9:35, I stood up to leave.  I walked down the steps, and he slowly started crossing the street towards me.  He came within about two feet of me, and then he turned to go the direction I had arrived from.  I crossed the road and walked to a different metro, wishing that my phone weren't dead.

Guys, why do these things happen to me?  I will be the first to admit that I'm just a typical, average-looking girl, so I don't think this had anything to do with my looks.  Does anybody else have similar experiences??

Last Night's Georgetown Adventures

I always have the most random things happen in Georgetown.  For example, here are some things that happened last night while I was out with Michelle:

-Salad dressing shots at Sweetgreen, followed up with complimentary lemonade (and, no, for the 9th time, I don't drink green tea.)

-Limitless tiny cupcakes at J.Crew.

-Walking out of Godiva and a woman talking on her iPhone throws her business card at me and shouts, "You need to call me! Girl, you need to call me!!! I know something IMPORTANT ABOUT YOUR LOVE LIFE!!"

-Going to a narrow hat store (the store was narrow, not the hats) and finding a bumpin' party- with a DJ and everything!  A hat store dance party!

Apparently, Cherry Blossom Grilled Cheese Is A Thing

Which is the surest sign that it's cherry blossom season!

Leslie-with-the-Killer-Style-and-the-Best-Hair and I went to see the blossoms yesterday, and it was perfectttt.  We dreamed up the best cherry blossom photoshoot- one that could be considered over the top if I believed that such a thing existed.  Now, gimme some funnel cake.

Philly

A small group of people went to Philly on Saturday.  I didn't organize it, but I did crash it.  Of course my alarm didn't go off (and it was hair washin' day, so that's a big deal).  Eve woke me up 22 minutes before go time (thanks, Eve!), and I managed to wash my hair, put on makeup, get dressed, and eat breakfast.  Basically, be really impressed with me.  Also, let's cut me some slack for my hair and outfit, mmmk?

We saw the Liberty Bell (not to be confused with my dog Belle).  The lighting was all wrong to get good photos by the Bell, so here are some pictures of the group/me annoying Kayvon (running theme of the day).

I grabbed a pretzel from a street vendor (right after he grabbed money from me, so it's all good and fair, don't worry).
Philly

We sat in Independence Square for the few minutes before we could go into ye old famous Independence Hall.  I've been a lot, so mostly I got more pictures of me being obnoxious.

For once, I was able to get friends to go with me to the art museum!!  We're spoiled in D.C. with so many free museums, so no one wants to pay when we're in Philly.  Also, ask me why it was especially perfect that it says KOREA.
